3-Day Cirrus Transition Course

The 3-day Cirrus Transition course is designed for licensed pilots who wish to fly a Cirrus aircraft. The course focuses on mastering aircraft control, engine management, the use of avionics, the use of autopilot, and critical emergency/abnormal situations in VFR conditions. Completing the Cirrus Transition Training course satisfies most insurance requirements or aircraft checkout procedures for pilots new to Cirrus aircraft. This package includes 3 days of one-on-one instruction and aircraft / avionics-specific pilot training. Most training is conducted one-on-one, but each course can be easily adapted to accommodate training with multiple pilots, including spouses, aircraft partners, and associates.  You also can have the instructor come to your home base location for transition training in your aircraft.
